A sad decline in standards for Rare.

D. Servant, Amazon
30 August 2006
  • Summary: Star Fox Adventures was an upsetting game to play. It was upsetting because visually, it shows all the gloss Rare are known for. However, once you start to play the game you realise all is not well. The majority of 'fights' in the game can be won without even looking at the screen (while hamering one button)! The gameplay is stodgy and lacks any idea of fun and generally feels workmanlike. It is like Zelda without any depth or challenge.

When adventure games go wrong

Amazon Customer "vgj_felix", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Shortly before releasing Starfox Adventures, Microsoft bought out Rare for a whopping $400 million. So not only will this be Rare's final Gamecube game, it will also mean Perfect Dark, if it is to have a sequel, will appear on the Xbox. Some might not be too bothered after this effort though. Since reaching gaming's zenith of perfection with Goldeneye, Rare slow descent has been more than apparent.

Starfox Adventures

Mr. A. P. Cox "crazyman50000", amazon.co.uk
20 February 2004
  • Summary: Starfox has grown over the years and was developed by Rare (now under the big black wing called Microsoft.) Starfox has been on the SNES, N64 and now the GCN. Graphics Beautifully animated sprites and a world that feels real. Sound Sound effects are spot on, but again, the music lets this game down. Gameplay Its just a massive "you cant pass here unless you fetch me 30 useless items" type game, very un-inspiring.

repetitve and dull, great graphics though

J. Day "Swift", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Nice looking, great colour, A grade scrolling - pity about the game itself. This is very boring, Platform 101 stuff. If u're any kind of experienced gamer give this a wide berth. There is no challenge required and most of the game is madeup of a delightfully cartoonish fox running around enormous levels in a frustrated sense of confusion. There is no manual dexterity challenge here, and the plot is infantile and formulaic. Mario Sunshine requires skill and patience.

StarFox Adventures

"adamserve", amazon.co.uk
10 January 2003
  • Summary: StarFox may be Rare's last game for GameCube but it isn't worth the 3 years spent on it. There are superb graphics but that doesn't make up for the endless backtracking and searching. The combat becomes boring and Prince Tricky is more annoying than helpful. The flying sections are OK and the bosses are good, the last boss isn't really anything new though. If your after a long Zelda type game then this will not satisfy.
